Have just found out that there was an Amateur Radio repeater in South London, but was closed down recently due to high cost of running at Crystal Palace. The Repeater “GB3SL” was one of 4 in London, but is the only one offline.
Luckily I can pick up the one in West London, but would be nice if GB3SL did make a comeback. Who know this post may trigger some interest.

I didn’t want to post before the event, but for 2 days (16-17/02/2004) I was on Strike with my Union PCS over pay.
I joined the picket line outside my office for a hour each day and we had at least 50%+ out on Strike or Leave. To continue action will now be “Working to Rule”.

Due to ongoing action I am not going to post more details for now
